Master of Architecture (MArch)
In architecture, we dwell in time as much as in space. As there is a geometry in space, so there is a psychology in time. The spatial narrative refers to a plot involved in the space design, also to the construction of the space, the arrangement of order relationship results in the effective content of space. The core of spatial narrative is to create the space order. The spatial narrative contains a mental world, in which the experienced, remembered and imagined, as well as the past, present, and future is inseparably intermixed.
Architecture is not only enfolded by the eye and touch, but identifies with our own body and existential experience. Architecture needs to include the “geology” of material and the “archaeology” of humanity. The “geology” of material means the layering of contents, chronology, and environmental situations. The “archaeology” of humanity means the migration, occupancy, abandonment, deconstruction, and resurrection of life.
